Hanavave Bay, Marquesas

I ran across these photos while putting together a presentation for the Rotary Club in Wellington. This is ‘Learjet’ sitting in Hanavave Bay, Fatu Hiva, Marquesas, French Polynesia, South Pacific, April 2005. This place is magical. It looks like Disney created it.

Here is the bay on another day at sunset, showing a closer view of the north side of the bay showing the lush greenery surrounding you:

When you go ashore you are greeted by an amazing valley that is guarded by huge spires and walled by massive jungle covered cliffs. It’s impossible to do it justice with a mere photo.

Oh, and don’t forget the throngs of little children trying to get your attention. In this case, 3 young boys posing for the camera, trying to look their most Marquesan.
